Carl Peterson bashes Whitlock

    This was from the message board Chiefs Coalition.Com

    They have a few members that received credentials to interview players, coaches, and in this case, Chiefs GM Carl Peterson:

    DB: Your opinion of Jason Whitlock?

    PETERSON: "You're going to write this down?"

    DB: Absolutely!!!

    (Peterson nods his head in disapproval and then opens his mouth to say something, followed by a 10 second pause... finally he speaks.)

    PETERSON: "He doesn't know our players, he's never around. He can get paid to say a bunch of stuff but his stuff isn't accurate."

    DB: He's like a shock-jock for a newspaper.

    PETERSON: "Yes, yes!!!"

    I don't know about you guys, but I think it is DEAD WRONG for this interviewer to bring up another member of the media. I know he's probably not a legit reporter, and that he's probably lacking some experience and knowledge about journalism ethics ... but is he out of whack?

    I've heard Jason called many things, but shock jock?

    I've met shock jocks, I know shock jocks, but Mr. Whitlock is no shock jock (unless you are on the other side of one of his pancake blocks ... then you can be shocked).

    FYI Jason, because I know you'll be reading this thread ... loved your piece on Cosby a couple months back.

    Pancake blocks? The only thing he destroys anymore is pancakes.

    There was a great Cosby on a couple of days ago. All the boyfriends and girlfriends of the kids came over at the same time, even Cockroach. He and Theo painted mustaches on each other.

    Classic Cosby.

    Or the wall at the Ann Arbor News
  9. i don't have a problem with the guy asking about me.... he works for a message board... he asked the kind of question a message-board fan would ask peterson... no big deal. the guy asked peterson a question chiefs fans want answered.

    There's an "around" joke in there, but I'll let someone else take it.

    Why should Whitlock have to respond at all? I'm not defending him....lord knows he doesn't need me...but unless this becomes a national story, then there's nothing for him to respond too.
  12. Conversely, reporters and columnists are accourntable also.

    if the chiefs have a beef, let's get it out in the open.

    having a byline or a coluimn doesn't make you anything but a guy with a byline or a column.

    personally, i''d like to see more writers held accountable, but also the teams and players they cover.

    accountabiility is everything is this business, whatever side of the ledger you're on. let's not forget that the teams, coaches, players, whatever, also hold us in question on many things, at many times.

    if you do your job well, you won't be questioned. otherwise, you're as accountable as anyone else.
